A 21-year-old man turned himself into police on Wednesday afternoon for sexually assaulting a woman — who bit his penis to escape — inside his South Richmond Hill apartment, prosecutors said.

Nickolos Samaroo is facing substantial prison time after he allegedly punched a woman unconscious and forced her to perform oral sex at knifepoint.

The 39-year-old woman bit Samaroo’s genitals to fend him off and escape, police said.

The brutal attack happened on Nov. 9 around 3 a.m. inside an apartment on 101st Avenue where Samaroo lives, the police confirmed.

When the woman regained consciousness, Samaroo, 21, tried to remove her pants, police said. The woman distracted Samaroo and attempted to run into the bathroom to get away from him, but he grabbed and dragged her into the bedroom, police said.

Samaroo, 21, allegedly knocked the woman out again. When she woke up, Samaroo allegedly stuck a knife to her face. The alleged rapist threatened to kill her if she did not comply with his demands and forced her to perform oral sex, police said.

The woman chomped down on Samaroo’s genitals as hard as she could, according to the criminal complaint. When Samaroo fell to the ground, she fled to safety, police said. It is unclear whether the victim and Samaroo knew each other prior to the attack, police said.

Samaroo was seen on surveillance video fleeing his home barefoot and shirtless.

The woman was treated at a nearby hospital for a cut to her face and right leg.

Samaroo was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on Thursday for first-degree criminal sex act, second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon charges.

If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison for the top charge.
